Freshly arrived in Bordeaux, Chloé created in 2015 her first boutique Mieux featuring a selection of women's clothing and accessories. With success knocking on her door, she bought the neighboring store to expand. One boutique is dedicated to apparel and enables her to develop men's clothing, and the other is dedicated to accessories & jewelry.

This story is above all a family affair since she launched with her husband her own brand of tee-shirts with modern and funny graphics.

Her two boutiques appeal to young and old alike thanks to their modern style and affordable prices.

Fun fact: Located in the center of Bordeaux, she often has foreign customers who visit her stores. One day, one of her salesmen who doesn't speak English very well called her and asked her for the translation of the term written on the T-shirt: skateboard.

In 1948, the CIVB, Conseil du Vin de Bordeaux, was created and moved into the former premises of the Hotel Gobineau, next to the Place de la Comédie. It’s objective is to promote Bordeaux as a wine region and to make it known internationally.

In 2006, some Spanish tourists came to their offices because they wanted to have a drink. Unfortunately for them, it was just an office and no wine tasting was organized here. This was all it took for the president of the council to decide to create a wine bar on their premises.

In order to continue the philosophy of the CIVB, they created a chic, relaxed and accessible place; a point of visibility for all the Bordeaux winedealers and winegrowers. With an unbeatable quality/price ratio and waiters at the top of their game, the CIVB bar became a must in Bordeaux.
